What is it?
The Ferrari 296 GTB is a hybrid supercar produced starting from 2021. Its name contains some basic information about it, namely the displacement (2992cc), the number of cylinders (6) and the category to which it belongs (Gran Turismo Berlinetta). It is the first supercar of the Maranello brand to mount a V-shaped 6-cylinder since 1973, the year in which the Dino was discontinued.
The aesthetics of the 296 GTB broadly echoes that of the SF90 Stradale, which can be considered a similar car also on a mechanical level. The effort of the designers and engineers focused on keeping the aerodynamic coefficient as low as possible and at the same time offering great visibility to passengers thanks to large glass surfaces. In the rear, in addition to the active spoiler, there is a single central exhaust with an isosceles trapezoid shape, something that has never been seen on a Ferrari before. The 296 GTB is similar in size and weight to its competitors, measuring 4,65 x 1,95 meters and having a dry weight of 1470kg.
Inside, the 296 GTB incorporates many features of the SF90 Stradale, having a highly customizable digital cockpit and a small control display for the passenger. The finishes are fully customizable.
The 296 GTB is equipped with HMI (Human-Machine Interface), a cluster of technologies such as 3D maps, voice commands, and Head-Up Display developed for maximum convenience and ease of use. This technology was previously introduced with the advent of the SF90. The 296 GTB can also be driven in Full-Electric mode for 25km of range.
This vehicle debuted with one of the most powerful V6 BiTurbo hybrids ever created, with a torque of 740NM and an output of 830HP (663HP thanks to the combustion engine and 167HP thanks to the electric one). This engine set the world record for displacement/power ratio among mass-produced cars, reaching 221HP per liter. The combustion engine is shared with the 100% petrol Maserati MC20, which was developed together with the latest Ferraris. The gearbox is an 8-speed automatic/sequential dual-clutch. The disk brakes measure 398mm at the front and 360mm at the rear.
